    We definitely do not need to be occupied or subjected to  more militarized forces. We need effective and committed leadership by ALL stakeholders in this situation – government, churches, schools, adults, children, law enforcement, etc.

    Boss Rahm’s response was pathetically weak.  Why have the community policing and neighborhood programs been defunded or eliminated?  Where are the summer opportunities for kids to work or participate in educational programs?  Where are the jobs for the adults so they can provide for their families and look to something other than the streets for survival?  

    How is it that we have BILLIONS to repair, rebuild, and reclaim foreign lands but nothing for our cities in need right here in our own backyard?  Citizens being murdered with impunity due to non-existent gun laws?  Cities being shut down and water turned off for residents but not corporation in arrears?  Little training and opportunity for children and adults?

    C’mon Man!  We must do better.  

    End the wars! Single payer now!
